Volunteers in Lexington rolled up their sleeves Thursday to carry on an important holiday tradition.

They helped the Salvation Army serve its annual Thanksgiving Day meal.

Volunteers made last-minute preparations for the feast, which usually feeds between 400 and 500 people.

And it's a lot of food.

Anywhere from 125 pounds of turkey and 120 loaves of bread are served.

Volunteers also served at least 75 homebound residents.

The Salvation Army in Lexington began serving its annual Thanksgiving meal in 1986.
